All Clad cookware first entered the market in 1973. In the following decades, it has established a reputation among many of the world's leading chefs as some of the best cookware available. Let's take a look at the history of the company and what makes their All Clad cookware products so special.

All About All Clad Cookware

All Clad cookware is produced using a special patented bonding process that provides even cooking surfaces and extreme durability. All Clad is in fact the only company in the United States to offer an entire line of cookware that is produced using raw materials from their own mill. The company spends a great deal of time and effort on the science behind their products.

The founder of All Clad is a metallurgist by the name of John B. Ulam. In the early days of the company, Ulam discovered that he could permanently bond three different kinds of metal together if he used the right amounts of heat and pressure. He patented this process, which the company refers to as "roll-bonding."

At their mill in Pennsylvania, the All Clad people hand manufacture all of their products. They bond the metals using raw materials manufactured at their plant, and then they press them into the required shapes. Each piece of cookware is then machine polished several times, and, before it is shipped out, it is hand polished by an All Clad craftsman.
